Diabetes Mellitus vizcarra_servicesIn General, diabetes is a disease characterized by the presence of high blood sugar levels. This can be the result of failure or malfunction of insulin. Diabetes is a chronic disease and requires the use of pills or insulin. This disease could have devastating consequences in many organs in our body if it is not controlled appropriately. As an internist, I have acquired much experience attending patients with diabetes.

High blood pressure The name is arterial hypertension. It is a very common chronic disease that affects the arteries. The cause of hypertension is usually unknown. Some of the worst consequences are heart failure, kidney failure, and many other health problems.

Cholesterol Cholesterol is fat. Unfortunately when there is excess of cholesterol in the blood it has a tendency to accumulate in the arterial wall. Once cholesterol is adhered to the arterial wall it’s impossible to remove. That’s the reason why many people are at risk of having heart attacks or strokes. There are treatments available to stop the accumulation of cholesterol in your arteries.

Obesity More than half of the population of the United States is overweight. In my clinic we will talk about the concept of “Body mass index” BMI and why it is important to maintain a proper BMI. Obesity is a very serious problem and is part of the “metabolic syndrome”.

Electrocardiogram It is a study that helps detect disorders of the rhythm of the heart and sometimes infarction. You can have an EKG in my office and is a non-invasive procedure.
